Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.
The season of nature, cool weather, and longer days doesn’t always have to be about our floral friends. This month, BloomMe has searched far and wide for nail designs that don’t adhere to the usual flower/spring combo seen in spring nails. Take on the season of change with a changed-up nail design that will send heads a turning and eyes glowing green (with envy at your awesome sausages).
So images of flowers are a no-go, but what about other plant life? A cactus gives you all the gr
een without the monotony of spring nails. Keep the nails designs clear and simple with a pastel base to stay fresh, and enjoy all the cute compliments coming your way (“is that a cactus on your nails? So cute!”)
BloomMe Recommends: 10/10 Space, Causeway Bay
A favourite of chic manicure enthusiasts everywhere, 10/10 can easily nail that nature themed manicure you’ve been craving. Their skilled technicians can recreate almost any image on your nail with a smile and a wonderful service.
2D is so last season, the third dimension is where it’s at. If you’re absolutely op
posed to having large stick on nail decorations (sometimes those sequins and gemstones get caught on things which leads to a lot of cursing and sweat words) but still want 3D then these designs are for you.
But placing two carefully positioned dots, preferably one in a luminescent material, you can recreate that 3D dot look without the stress of ornaments popping off left right and centre.
BloomMe Recommends: Hot Nail, Causeway Bay
Hot Nail specialise in nails with bling and sparkle. And because they know the importance of correct placement of bling on your nail they are the best for creating the fiddly look that is 3D dots. Their technicians can also recommend the best colour scheme to make your nails go pop!
Rose Quartz Nails
Quartz is everywhere in fashion and design at the moment, and we decided to kick it up a notch by adding a Spring pastel to the vibe. Using choice pastel colours, your nail technician will use a soft white to create faux lines to emanate that quartz feel.
BloomMe recommends: Hong Kong Nail and Beauty
As quartz nails takes precision and patience, we know the wonderful team at Hong Kong Nail and Beauty have it in the bag. Sitting right below Soho off the escalators, this salon will give you chic nails and easy access to the coolest bars (Happy Hour and Nails!)
When it comes to a fishtail design, we are talking about delicate scales and patterned layers with a pastel/aquatic feel. For that mermaid glam, throw in a little metallics to really feel like you’re under the sea (darling, it’s better). At BloomMe, we are all about being eco-friendly, so rat
her than getting a classic glitter palate, why not see if you can use a more eco-friendly glitter? For a list of products that won’t harm the environment check out our guide to a glitter-free world.
BloomMe recommends: Unique Nails, Tsim Sha Tsui
Located on Canton Road in TST, this gem of a spa will be your go-to for bright colours and eye catching designs. Get your nails done and then go for a brisk walk about Kowloon Park to seal the day off with a smile.
Half- Moon Manicure
The moon manicure generally refers to the nail pattern where it looks like a moon is rising on each of your fingernails. We love this design for it’s simplicity but also it’s unique look. Turn heads with a soft colour palate and a pop of shine along the cuticle this spring.
BloomMe recommends: Rainbow Nails, Central
Rainbow Nails in Central are always ahead of the game when it comes to new nail designs, and they can not only make your moon manicure a work of art but they can also pamper and clean up your cuticles perfectly. The salon is perfectly equipped for a girls day of pampering, so don’t hold back on inviting friends for a session of mooning.
Send hearts a flutter with everyone’s favourite Lepidoptera: the butterfly. As it is the season of nature and animals, why not sport a cute butterfly on each of your nails to celebrate? At BloomMe we love the Monarch butterfly for it’s orange colouring (very in this season, plus orange and black match with everything!) but any one of our fluttery pals will look amazing.
BloomMe Recommends: Nu Nail and Beauty, Tsim Sha Tsui
With a super cute interior and super cute staff, you know this boutique salon will have the goods when it comes to the intricate designs that are needed for butterfly wings.
